Am a male aged 27old a Congolese by nationality ,single and a resident of Kyangwali refugees settlement as a refugee in Uganda. Am the founder of this Organization and now am working as the executive director and am among the decision makers of the Organization. The Organization started by me in 2015 as a small group and further grew in 2018 as an organization after registration from the local government of Uganda.Iam educated to maximum of advanced level (senior 6) and so I didn't get chance to go further with education. By now am joining the network because I want assistance from you and anyone having passionate of funding us and helping refugees. As the Organization we handle child protection, Education for children especially Girls and livelihood programs. In child protection we handle Sexual Gender Based Violence (SGBV) Cases, provide sanitary pads and soaps to Girls and women as a way of promoting hygiene etc. In Education,we provide scholastic materials to school going children. For example we give school bags, school uniforms,books and pens to encourage education as a ways of Empowerment to people. Then with livelihood program, we give agriculture support such as vegetable seeds, animals and birds for rearing as away of boosting living standards of people. Why do we feel that we are the best for this, is because we are based in the area of need. For example refugees are not allowed to own land and other things in the country he or she's as a refugee. They don't dig nor do business only live by small portion of food they receive from World Food Program WFP funded by UNHCR. And so by being refugees, we found that they are not limited to Education and protection. That's the reasons to why we came up to help. Thank you for your time and let's meet for more information if at all you will need.
